Biographical Information
Matthew Amoah
(At a Glance)
Date of Birth: Oct/24/1980
Gender: male
Place of Origin: Ghana

He formerly played for Vitesse, starting as a youngster in 1998 until 2005.

Amoah signed with Borussia Dortmund in December 2005, during the winter transfer window, rejoining coach Bert van Marwijk, who managed him during the 1999/00 season at another Dutch side, Fortuna Sittard. Amoah signed a two-year contract, but could only manage seventeen first-team appearances (going scoreless in the process) in one-and-a-half seasons. "There was a number of options but Amoah was the one the manager wanted", Hans-Joachim Watzke, Dortmund's finance director, told the Westfälische Rundschau at the time.

The 26-year-old Amoah signed a three-year deal with Eredivisie's NAC Breda on 3 July 2007, after a medical. The former Vitesse forward returned to Holland after a lack of first-team opportunities at Dortmund. "We have been working on this deal for months", NAC technical director Earnie Stewart said. "First it looked like it was impossible for the player to sign, but this week negotiations went quicker."

An international since 2002, Amoah was an instrumental figure in Ghana's first ever qualification for the World Cup, scoring three goals in three consecutive and important qualifying matches.
